    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Oct 8, 2013

    In the end Halo Initiation #3 turned out to be an action movie with very little depth, but it was a good one at that. Recommended. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Mario Miranda Oct 15, 2013

    Overall, I would not recommend this for casual fans of the Halo universe, this is absolutely a series geared for hardcore fans. I really wish this was a longer mini or an ongoing because even in trade format, there will only be three issues. Hopefully this is just a good start to great Halomini series from Dark Horse.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Oct 9, 2013

    Again, this was a good ending, but there was a noticeable dip in quality for both the story and art. Hopefully with the ongoing this won't be an issue, but I really hope that the art has a major jump in the quality. While I didn't mind it on this series it was as spectacular as the franchise deserved. If you're a Halo fan though then you definitely don't want to miss the story elements added to the universe here. Read Full Review

It is a solid piece, but completely unnecessary. Read Full Review

    And then the action starts. Well, sort of. All we get is a push of a button and an explosion. See, my problem with this book — and it's been this way the whole series — is that we don't get to know the characters at all. I mean, who cares if a bunch of Spartans b Read Full Review
